Fridge not getting cold enough

Postby dougmitchell » Fri May 26, 2017 7:38 pm

I have an Alder/Barbour with a Danfoss compressor (BD50F) unit in my 33T. Is there a way to recharge the system? Or, is there a better way to diagnose the issue?

Thank you for your ideas!

I know it's way too late to help now, but may be able to help some others in the future. I have a similar refrigerator which even on absolutely as high as it would go it would only cool the main part of the fridge to about 44 degrees in fall cool weather of say 50 to 60 degrees outside. I unbolted the capillary sensor from the side of the freezer portion and within a day it had everything in the refrigerator Frozen and it had it down to 20 degrees. I then bolted just the very tip of the sensor underneath the plate that attaches it to the side of the freezer and that seemed to do the trick. At setting four it keeps the refrigerator at about 34 degrees and works like a champ
